Vienna City Tour

Central Europe 8th part; 2-days sightseeing solo in Austria
October 26 to October 27, 2013

After checking first my backpack to hostel far from city center, I roam the city again by self-guided through a free map provided starting from Schonbrunn palace then going to city center. 

Schonbrunn palace is a former imperial 1,441-room Rococo summer residence in modern Vienna, Austria. One of the most important cultural monuments in the country, since the 1960s it has been one of the major tourist attractions in Vienna. Entrance fee costs 11.50 Euro, photography and video is not allowed inside. As for me, this is not worth it for its price. Votive Church (Votivkirche) is a neo-Gothic church and was dedicated in 1879 on the silver anniversary of Emperor Franz Joseph and his wife Empress Elisabeth. St. Stephen's Cathedral is the mother church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vienna and the seat of the Archbishop of Vienna. Vienna Donauturm, opened in April 1964, is the tallest structure in Austria, at 252 metres, and among the 75 tallest towers in the world.
